About Joy Kirsch

Dallas, TX ~  Joy D. Kirsch founded Kirsch & Associates in 1990.  The company specializes in providing wealth management and transition planning services to clients experiencing Life Changing Events, such as retirement, widowhood, or selling a business.  She has developed a unique process for delivering these services to her clients called The TruWealth® Process. Using this proprietary, consultative process, she works closely with a team of tax and legal professionals to help clients transition to their new paradigm with confidence.

Joy believes that true wealth is not just a measure of one’s financial assets, but the sum of a person’s health, wealth, and personal relationships.  She has devoted her professional career to helping others define their values, dream new dreams and align their wealth accordingly.

Joy is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM, a member of the Sudden Money® Institute, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist SM, and the founding member of The Widow’s Journey TM, a non-profit entity dedicated to educating and empowering widows.  She is active in the Dallas Financial Planning Association and former chairman of the Ft. Worth Business & Estate planning Section of the Ft. Worth Bar Association.  She graduated cum laude from the University of Dallas with a bachelor’s degree in Economics.

Although Joy has won several industry awards, including being recognized as one of The Best Financial Planners in Dallas in 2009 and 2010 by D Magazine* and a Five Star Wealth Manager in 2010 by Texas Monthly magazine**, she is most proud of her twenty-five talented, beautiful and exceptional nieces and nephews. When she is not chained to her desk, she can be found on her farm in East Texas, usually in her garden or rocking on her front porch and watching the sunset.

* “The Best Financial Planners in Dallas” was compiled by asking every CFP® in the Dallas-Ft. Worth chapter of the Financial Planners Association to cast an online ballot.  Outside-firm votes counted more than inside-firm votes.  Self-nominations were tossed out.  A panel of esteemed local financial planners reviewed the final list.
**”The FiveStar Wealth Manager” is an award based on client satisfaction. Respondents evaluate criteria such as customer service, expertise, value for fee charged and overall satisfaction. The overall score is based on an average of all respondents and may not be representative of any one client’s experience.
